I applaud you attention to detail, especially on the wiring. I wish you many years of trouble (and scratch) free trailering.

Default Stain and sealer

Well the wood is going back on for the last time. I still need to get them straight and put on the (90) 1/4" Nuts on my back.

Very nice looking trailer. You will however change a couple of things after using it a bit. After gouging body parts on the tail lights, they will be moved to a vertical orientation, tucked in. The spare tire will be located on the side, front or rear of the fender. First to keep it out of the mud and gravel, second, sharp entry and exit from curbs and parking lots will scream and crunch. Onlookers will be crankin' their heads to see "WTF" was that. Just life's observations, the trailer is sweet.

Tip it on its side, install the nuts and save yourself the back ache.

I've never owned a trailer that had a protected license plate bracket assy.

As a plate has to be mounted on the horizontal and sitting under a light, the outside end of the plate is always exposed and usually gets beat the hell up, often breaking the tail light it's sitting under.

It seems that the width of the fenders and how the upright framing of the trailer does not allow the plate to be protected from/on it's outside edge

I have plans to increase it's life expectancy somewhat in the near future.
